Cohesity launches as-a-service backup for Google Cloud
As companies move more of their workloads to the cloud they want to ensure that their data is properly protected.
Storage specialist Cohesity is launching a new software as a service (SaaS) solution that delivers enterprise-grade backup and recovery for applications running on the Google Cloud platform.
Cohesity Cloud Backup Service for Google Cloud eliminates the need for customers to deploy backup software, infrastructure, or custom scripts. Instead, customers can benefit from backup SaaS capabilities that are easy to use and integrate natively with GCP.
"With organizations looking to leverage the cloud and eliminate the need to provision infrastructure, backup of cloud-native workloads is a critical part of the data protection strategy," says Rich Sanzi, vice president of engineering at Google Cloud. "Integrations with technology partners like Cohesity provide a simple and easy Backup-as-a-Service experience with Google Cloud, empowering customers to focus on what matters most -- growing their business."
The service delivers a range of new capabilities and benefits that make it easy for enterprises to meet business and regulatory backup compliance requirements. These include native backup of Google Compute virtual machines, with granular search and recovery. It also delivers near-zero recovery times to any point in time.
There's a single SaaS-based dashboard for all management tasks that provides self-service capabilities based on user roles. The service is natively integrated with GCP's Identity and Access Management (IAM) too. Pay-as-you-go monthly charges enable customers to minimize capital expenditures and administrative complexity.
"Cohesity has quickly become a preferred choice for customers to back up their cloud and on-premises workloads, and we want to make it easy for enterprises to leverage our innovative and efficient platform no matter where their data resides," says Vineet Abraham, senior vice president of engineering at Cohesity. "We're excited to add to the powerful capabilities of GCP so that companies can overcome mass fragmentation challenges and truly maximize the value of their data."
